NeoLAB LAMY Safari all black ncode smartpen review – Analog meets digital

REVIEW – I enjoy keeping a paper journal, notebook, diary, log, whatever you want to call it. I use one every day to write down 3-4 tasks that I want to accomplish because I’ve found that writing them on paper and checking them off as I finish them, actually makes me more productive than putting …

Motoilet Health Tracking AI Smart Bidet Toilet Seat review – Everybody poops, but hold it for now

CROWDFUNDING REVIEW – Everybody poops.  There, I got that out of the way. And since everybody poops, everybody consumes a lot of toilet paper. Our house has a septic system, so the paper (theoretically) dissolves and slowly works its way back into the Florida (where I live) aquifer as clean water. I’m not convinced about …

Hiker Garden 10 person tent review – spacious and sturdy all weather tent

REVIEW – I’ve used quite a few tents in my days, from tiny to huge and cheap to mid-range/name brand. In fact, some of my earliest memories of camping are of my father connecting separated pole segments for a big canvas tent that was leaky and heavy and took nearly an hour to set up …

Cyansky HS6R triple output rechargeable headlamp review

REVIEW – I’ve had many flashlights in the years gone by, but I’ve never had a decent headlamp. I’ve had a couple of really cheap ones, but they never lasted long. When the Cyansky HS6R headlamp review offer came along, I hoped this was my chance to get a really nice one. Was I correct? …

Manfrotto MVG220 3-Axis Stabilized Handheld Gimbal review

REVIEW – When someone mentions Manfrotto, what comes to mind are photo and video camera tripods and monopods. To me, Manfrotto was synonymous with them. So, when I heard that Manfrotto had camera gimbals I knew I wanted to try one out and see just how well it performed. If their gimbals are as solid in …
